Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: nasty Wet Crawl in Haubstadt, IN
Haubstadt, IN, had been receiving a good amount of rain, causing a homeowner to reach out to us regarding still water on the crawl space ground. The water mixed with humidity had caused mold spores to spread on the wooden beams of the ceiling. If this is not taken care of soon, then the mold can eventually spread to the home's rooms and cause allergies for the homeowners. To prevent mold from spreading, water needs to be eliminated from the crawl space's floor. The homeowner was ready to take the next step of creating a healthy home.
To eliminate the mold, there needs to be a system set in place for water to leave the crawl space. A SmartSump was the best solution! The SmartSump includes a quality, sturdy cast iron pump that lasts longer than plastic pumps. CleanSpace is laid across the crawl space to completely seal off the space from the outdoor air. This will create an "indoor" environment that makes it safe to store items in the crawl space. Once the space is sealed and mold remediation is performed, the SaniDry Sedona is hooked up to create a constant dry airflow throughout the space. The homeowner was pleased to find a bright clean space that was mold-free.
